Weekly Menu 6/30 - 7/4


When 4th of July falls on a Thursday, both Thursday and Friday should be considered holidays. As far as I know, I have to work on the 5th and I am going to be the only person there. I typically spend my Fridays at the showroom and I'm pretty sure its going to be completely dead. I'm assuming everyone with vacation time is taking off Friday and having a super long weekend.

But speaking of, I'm totally not ready for the 4th yet. I always consider that midway through the summer and I'm not ready for summer to be halfway over yet! I've only managed to finally get a significant amount of sun yesterday!

In farewell of Google Reader and the fact that I spent like 20 hours going through and pinning all of my starred recipes to Pinterest, I decided everything I made this week would be a pinned recipe, dinner each night, breakfast, lunch and my usual random desserts.

Sunday - Blue Cheese Burgers, Corn on the Cob, Salad

Monday - Coconut Shrimp with Texas Skinny Fries 

Tuesday - Spicy Crusted Filet with Sweet Corn Risotto

Wednesday - Bacon Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Salad

Thursday - Pierogies 

Yes, I plan on making boxed pierogies for the 4th of July instead of having the traditional burger. But, for all I know, we may end up making the pierogies for lunch and going out to dinner for a burger.

For breakfast this week, I'm doing banana peanut butter muffins and lunch will be a Panera copycat recipe of their Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich.

My sister-in-law introduced me to that sandwich last summer when we stopped there after an afternoon of shopping and it has been my go-to sandwich ever since. I'm thrilled that I found a recipe so I can make it at home.

In the world of desserts, I'm trying out two-ingredient ice cream that doesn't require an ice cream maker and maybe some smores brownies. But I also have some apples that are going to go bad if I don't use them up, so maybe apple turnovers instead. I'm not sure yet. 


  1. I should totally make blue cheese burgers, I have everything I need.

  2. Yummy! Your menu sounds delish! Esp the blue cheese burgers. Thanks for linking up :)

  3. I admire your stamina for cooking and planning all that food! I also cook a lot but for the next 2 weeks, I’ll be hanging my apron for cooking hat for awhile. You see, I’m on a 3 day military diet since my best friend is getting married in 2 weeks! I know, it’s an emergency and my sister who tried the diet told me about it. It’s pretty low carb and there’s no fancy cooking and preparing food – so that interested me. I figured I can’t really be on a diet if I’m going to cook a lot of yummy dishes. The good news is I lost around 7 pounds and was quite happy! If you want to see the food selection included in the meal plans, here’s a great resource page. You might want to do a review of the food and the diet itself for your readers like me. Hope this helps http://3daysmilitarydiet.com/faq/fat-burning-veggies.html
